There is no such thing as the perfect mom

This is one of my favorite quotes.  When I read it I think of being a mom.  When you see moms on Facebook that have perfect lives and perfect children, you can be sure of one thing... they are lying!  No mom is perfect and when it comes to being a parent, there will be mistakes.  Lots of mistakes.   Parenting is a struggle.  

Mistakes are OK.  Remember that they are proof that you are trying.

Unfortunately these "perfect" moms don't realize that they are doing a disservice to other moms.  They make the rest of us feel inadequate in comparison.  My advice when dealing with these "perfect" moms is to remember that you are only getting a glimpse of what they want you to see.  You are comparing their highlight reel to your behind the scenes unedited version.
